Tokyo birthday dinners

Kuri-chan | Jan 22, 2003 10:34 PM

Both my bf and I are turning 30 next month so Ifm looking for a couple of places where we could go out for dinner, preferably one Italian and one French.
I am looking for somewhere with great food (especially fish) and nice ambient, but would rather not spend more than about 8,000 yen each. This shouldnft be too difficult as we can only drink about one glass of wine between us. Anywhere within nearby driving distance of Tokyo would be fine too. I have been considering the following places, but any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Luxor (new place in Shirokanedai from Mario Frittoli of Il Pinolo), Eno Gusto (Daiba), Carmine (Kagurazaka), Enoteca Kiora (Azabu Juban), La Granata (Akasaka), La Cantinella (Omotesando), Al Doge (Minami Aoyama)

Chez Matsuo (Aoyama Salon), Brasserie Bec (Yoyogi Uehara), Brasserie Gus (Kagurazaka), AOC Yoyogi, Brin de Muguet (Ogikubo)

I have not been to these places so I would be grateful for input from people who have tried them.
